Abstract

GOVIND, C N et al. NDM-1 imported from India - first reported case in South Africa. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2013, vol.103, n.7, pp.476-478. ISSN 2078-5135.

Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae have been increasingly reported throughout the world. The first South African report of a New Delhi metallo-beta-lactamase was from Gauteng in August 2011. Despite maintaining a high degree of vigilance, the first such case was seen in KwaZulu-Natal almost a year later. Other cases have been unable to confirm a definite link to any other affected areas; this is the first case in South Africa showing this direct epidemiological link.
